The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka) has announced plans to revise the curriculum of its chartered accounting qualification aimed at providing accountants with an updated all-round skill set.
According to CA Sri Lanka the curriculum will focus on five pillars, including financial accounting and reporting; management accounting and finance; tax and law as well as assurance and ethics.
CA Sri Lanka president Arjuna Herath said the curriculum was developed following both domestic and international consultation, and would meet with all the required international standards.
"In 2013 CA Sri Lanka recorded the highest number of student registrations of over 12,000. I believe with the new curriculum which will be launched shortly, the registrations will only increase," CA Sri Lanka chief executive Aruna Alwis said.
More than 30% of CA Sri Lanka members serve abroad, Alwis added.
